Two possibile solutions:
1. Send your request in the current window with window.location.href='myscript.fwx'. The script should return HTTP code 204 (no content), which will instruct the browser to leave the content of the previous page displayed:
2. Instead of opening a new window, simply create a frame, or iframe with 0 pixels width and/or height. You can then use top.framename.location.href='myscript.fwx' to send your URL to the server. The FoxWeb Forum uses this technique to send information back to the server without displaying a response (for example, when you use the "Flag Thread" button).

I want to open a new window using window.open() but when the window opens I don't want it to be visible because I am only using it to pass information then shutdown and go back to the original parent window. Is this possible. I am trying to pass a Java Var to create a Clipper Var
Thanks for your help
